Majo0od's answer is the way I always prefer time-sensitive things to be displayed. It seems weird if something is listed as "[Today's date] [Current time, +3 hours]" if the event is simply 3 hours away, yet I don't want something 14 and a half days from now saying "348 hours from now" either.

Most People will know this when dealing with calendar. Notice is not necessary i believe. I would suggest to use Tomorrow at 02:00 am / Tomorrow early morning. 00:00 - 09:00 - EARLY MORNING 09:00 - 12:00 - MORNING 12:00 - 16:00 - AFTERNOON 16:00 - 20:00 - EVENING 20:00 - 23:59 - NIGHT and so on. This will give a clear idea for the user.
